What's New✓ New: When Cardiograph takes a good reading, you can now simply lift your finger off the camera lens to stop and save your measurement. A small checkmark will appear on top of the accuracy indicator to let you know that we have enough data for a good measurement.
✓ New: If there was a problem getting an accurate measurement, you can now start a new measurement directly from the screen that tells you what went wrong.
✓ Fix: We resolved an issue with MacBook Pro laptops with dedicated GPUs running OS X 10.8.3 where the interface would freeze after you start a measurement.
✓ Changed: The usability of the Profiles screen has been improved. Editing and activating profiles should be more intuitive now.
✓ Changed: We've tweaked the algorithm to improve the finger detection under certain circumstances.
App DescriptionCardiograph is an application which measures your heart rate. You can save your results for future reference, keep track of multiple people with individual profiles, add notes and locations, and even print out your measurements for sharing or safe keeping.
Cardiograph uses your Mac's built-in camera to take pictures of your fingertip and calculate your heart's rhythm - the same approach used by professional medical equipment!
✓ Measure your heart rate
It's never been easier to know what your heart rate is! Without any dedicated hardware, just using the built-in camera of your MacBook or iMac, you can get accurate readings almost instantly.
Knowing how fast your heart is beating can be very useful when exercising, if you're under stress, if you have a heart-related medical condition, or even just out of curiosity.
✓ Universal application with iCloud® sync
Cardiograph is an universal application - it runs on Mac computers, in addition to the iPhone, the iPad, iPad mini, and the iPod touch.
Install Cardiograph on multiple devices and all your profiles and measurements will be in sync! Manage your profiles and measurements on one device, and the changes are instantly reflected on all the others.
✓ Track your results
Every measurement you take is saved to your personal history, so you can keep track over time. In addition to the date and time of the measurement, you can also save the location at which it was taken (and see them on a map), and even add a quick note to effortlessly organize your history.
✓ Multiple profiles
Cardiograph is perfectly tailored to allow multiple people to use the app on a shared device. You can create profiles for each of your family members or friends, and each of them has their own individual measurement history.
✓ Export & Print
Each measurement can be exported in full detail to a portable format that you can later send via e-mail, upload on the web or even print on paper.
✓ Clean and intuitive design
Inspired by real-life medical equipment, Cardiograph is a pleasure to use. The streamlined and clutter-free design makes it seem instantly familiar, so you can focus on using the app instead of navigating through series of confusing screens.
✓ Built-in user guide
If you're having trouble with the app, or you want to make the most out of it, you can access the comprehensive help manual right from within the app itself.
